Maria Ranadi

In Fiji, kava is a popular non- alcoholic beverage for village folk. Maria (42) was raised on a farm and now intends to cultivate the pepper trees whose dried root supplies the kava powder. She and her husband may also start exporting kava. So Maria seeks a loan to buy seeding and propagation materials, and pest controls to protect the growing plants.
